A perspective on Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis
"Her iconic status really came after President Kennedy's death when she withdrew from public life and was rarely heard from publicly. The Jacqueline Kennedy on these tapes fits, I think, with what we might have expected if we think of her from the vantage point of her White House years."
Pictured: She was an amateur painter and influenced her husband to work with oils after the start of their marriage. The couple often spent Sundays painting in the back garden of their Georgetown home in Washington, D.C.
